Family Lawyers Arlington Heights 

Family law is that important branch of the law that addresses family-related legal matters. While divorce is part of this, there is a lot more to family law than simply divorce. Family concerns tend to hit us hard, and working closely with family lawyers in Arlington Heights can mean the difference between moving forward with purpose and confidence and not being able to do so. You have parental and financial rights within the context of family law, and a dedicated family lawyer can help you protect them. 

Family Law

Family law involves wide-ranging family-related issues, including the following:

  • Divorce 
  • Divorce-related concerns, including parental responsibility, division of marital assets, child support, and alimony
  • Divorce modifications and other post-divorce matters
  • Child support and parental responsibility outside the realm of divorce
  • Issues that require a guardian ad litem (GAL)
  • Parental alienation
  • Orders of protection
  • Relocation (moving with child out of state or a significant geographic distance)
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR)

If it matters to your family, it’s an important issue.

Finding Your Way Forward

Most family matters (other than protection orders) can be resolved between you and the other person involved (either a spouse, former spouse, and/or the parent of your children) by negotiation and agreement. This does not mean that you and he or she need to negotiate in perfect harmony, which, often, is not a possibility. The fact is that you have options that include allowing your experienced family lawyer to negotiate skillfully on behalf of your best interests with the other party and/or his or her family lawyer and taking the matter to mediation– with your respective family lawyers by your sides. Only if you exhaust these options without finding a resolution will the matter need to be decided by the court. 

Parental Responsibility Concerns

One of the primary areas of concern that is handled by family law is child custody, which is called parental responsibility in Illinois. When the court addresses child-related issues, it always bases its decisions on the best interest of the children. Because the prevailing belief is that children are universally best served by continuing to foster a strong relationship with both parents (to the extent possible and barring a compelling reason for believing otherwise), the court rarely cuts one parent out of child custody entirely – meaning that it is rare for a parent not to have some form of visitation with his or her children.
